Connecting with nature breathes new life into me. I go into the dark recesses of the woods to embrace those terrifying parts of my mind, my deepest fears, and understand them. It’s there, in the loneliest moments, staring death in the face I realise what truly matters. It’s standing on a mountaintop in awe of the view beyond, a stiff breeze all that stands between me and the depths below. It’s the freezing ocean currents that swirl around my legs as I sink into the coarse sand. It’s the vast stars in the clear night sky that beg the hardest questions. It’s the kaleidoscope of emotions that make me feel alive.
